Construction Management

What is the difference between a Project Manager and a Construction Manager?

A project manager deals in all aspects of the real estate development process from the initial assessment/conception phase, until the final move in, and beyond. A construction manager, on the other hand, is concerned solely with the construction aspect of the project.

Supervising the construction phase

In simple terms, the project manager will make sure all activities are aligned with the client’s overall goals and objectives for the project. This means that the project manager will plan, manage, oversee, and fine-tune all the details of the project, not just its construction phase and will even help to select and ultimately manage the construction manager.

  • Our construction managers are involved in personnel management at the construction site.
  • They ensure that materials are delivered on time and that tools are available on the work site.
  • They also administer the construction budget.
  • They will request work order changes and make decisions as to building practices in compliance with building codes.
  • Construction managers are responsible for meeting with consultants, clients, engineers, and inspectors.

 

Benefits

  • A construction manager will lead and oversee all aspects of the completion of a building
